Grilling with Greg - Blue Cheese Stuffed Burgers
4 tablespoons butter , cut in small pieces
1/3 cup mild hot sauce
1/2 cup finely crumbled blue cheese
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2 lbs 85% lean ground beef or 2 lbs ground buffalo meat
1/2 teaspoon celery seed
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
6 hamburger buns , split
Melt butter and whisk in hot sauce.
Mix blue cheese and garlic in a small bowl.
Using your hands, gently mix beef (or buffalo), celery seed, onion and 1/4 cup hot sauce mixture in a medium bowl until blended. Form into 12 patties, using a light touch; the patties should be about 4 1/2 inches in diameter and no more than 1/2 inch thick.
Spoon about 2 teaspoons of cheese-garlic mixture in center of 6 patties, then top with remaining patties and press together, sealing edges.
Cover and refrigerate until ready to grill.
Heat grill to medium and oil grate.
Grill burgers about 4-5 minutes on each side, or until cooked to taste. Brush with remaining hot sauce mixture during last 2 minutes of cooking. Toast buns if you like.
